The Test Well No. 4 Project plans to identify potential coalbed methane drill sites in the State of Alaska. There are two primary objectives in this activity. First, research and drilling in Alaska will provide much needed data on coal and methane in that state. Second, if the well is successful, gas produced will be used to fulfill the energy needs of Alaskan villages. Work on the College of West Virginia Multistrata Wells continued with plans for reworking the entire system. The College focused on preparing a detailed and comprehensive work plan involving workover on each well and installation of a compressor into the main gathering line. When this work is complete, CWV will be able to place the three project wells back on line and begin production to provide for the on campus energy needs of the College. Planning was initiated on a project to demonstrate newly developed technologies for multi-strata gas and water production to enhance commercial applications. The Morcinek Mine area in Poland was identified as a prime target for the capture of methane gas and the clean-up of associated brine. CWV subcontractors shall implement a system to capture coalbed methane and brine, and to utilize the captured gas to operate brine clean-up equipment. This equipment will include a submerged evaporator and a reverse osmosis unit. In short, this technology will take brine and produce potable water and commercial salt.
